Bristol was giving problems with some window managers due to the enforcement of the aspect code of the bristol window. When the window is resized then the brighton library calculates another window size of the correct ratio and sends that request to the window manager then starts painting when the resize notification comes from the window manager.
This can fail when the window manager does not want to honour the request from brighton.
The resolution will either be to just paint with whatever aspect ratio is available however that will look a little gory, the other is to decide what is the best fit and leave swathes of the window blank.
